Long Format Report Market Monitor Snapshot - Desktop

Desktop Virtualization (Server, Client, Cloud & OS Hosted)

executive summary Executive Summary

Desktop virtualization is a real market with material opportunity. The virtualization market has thus far been dominated by server virtualization offerings, and we expect this to be the case for the next several years. While the server virtualization opportunity is relatively well established, desktop virtualization is still in its infancy. But we believe the desktop marketplace has the potential to be larger than the server market.

While the cost savings of desktop virtualization have been touted, adoption has been slow due to technical limitations, the economic environment, political and sociological factors, and the fact that the cost savings/ROI of desktop virtualization has not been well established. We believe this market will succeed, though. Vendors continue to upgrade their desktop virtualization capabilities, and recent product launches represent an industry moving toward an offering with broad market appeal.

This report examines the desktop virtualization market ? including serverhosted, client-hosted, OS-hosted and cloud-hosted offerings ? and features aggregate market growth expectations, as well as breakdowns of total revenue and vendor/product by market subsector. The report also covers overall growth drivers and inhibitors and includes detailed snapshots of 26 vendors.
